The Indiana House has officially passed the Constitutional Carry, a bill that would repeal the state’s permit requirement for carrying a handgun in public.
The “permitless carry” proposal passed in a 63-29 vote Tuesday. The bill would permit anyone age 18 or older to carry a handgun, except those with a felony conviction or possessing a dangerous mental illness.
Currently the state requires Hoosiers to obtain a license to carry a loaded handgun outside their own home, business, or car. Those who back the bill argue requiring law-abiding citizens to undergo police background checks to carry is undermining their Second Amendment rights.
“Law-abiding Hoosiers should not have to beg permission from the government in order to exercise a Constitutionally-protected freedom.”
Twenty-one states in the US currently practice Constitutional Carry.
